For Thanksgiving, Gratitude And Graffiti

By on November 27, 2014

GratitudeGraffiti1When you go for a stroll to walk off the turkey today, wander by Verona Yoga. The windows are covered with graffiti, but it’s all for a good purpose.

The yoga studio, which is located just opposite Verona Park at 546 Bloomfield Avenue, is the site of The Gratitude Graffiti Project, which it describes this way:

This is a practice of purposeful appreciation of one’s life through interactive art. The project engages us to:
1. Contemplate a source of gratitude in their lives and then
2. Provide an outlet to be able to express that thought of thankfulness.

The project was introduced to the studio by one of its teachers, Ania Lesiak, and wholeheartedly embraced by studio owner Doreen Arminio. “Let’s use our storefront at Verona Yoga to spread the message of gratitude to passersby,” she wrote to her clients this week. “We are blessed to have this sanctuary in the middle of busy Bloomfield Avenue in Verona. It’s so easy to forget our blessings, especially when we’re in the midst of chaos and all that life throws at us.”

The graffiti doesn’t photograph well, so try to see it in person.
